Karyn Collier, DVM
Chief of Staff
Dr. Collier is the Chief of Staff. She is also a veterinarian in the Department of Emergency and Critical Care, as well as the Marshall Center for the Treatment of Feline Hyperthyroidism.
Dr. Collier previously served as Chief Medical Officer of Saint Francis during its first three years of practice, leading the hospital to achieve status as a Top-2 Finalist for Referral Practice of the Year in 2014 (American Animal Hospital Association) as well as the achievement of VECCS certification as a Level II VECCS facility (Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care Society) in 2015, the first VECCS-certified practice in the State of New Jersey.
Dr. Collier earned her DVM at Cornell University and her BS in Biology from Tougaloo College. She is presently a candidate to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in 2015.
Dr. Collier knew at the age of 8 that she wanted to be a veterinarian, when her dog was saved by a doctor in Mississippi following a car accident. One of her favorite parts of working as a veterinarian is the opportunity to develop relationships with clients and work with them to keep their pets healthy. She shares her home with four dogs, Coogan, Stitch, Demon and Munny, all rescues from local shelters.
Dr. Collier has a particular interest in reproductive medicine.
Outside of work, she’s a self-proclaimed ‘Super Soccer Mom!’ as the mother of three wonderful children. She has run half-marathons and can’t get enough of her home-town Philadelphia Phillies baseball team.
